STERILIZED SAMPLE COLLEC TION & PROCESSING BAGS

Whirl-Pak® features • Puncture-Proof Closure Tabs: Eliminate sharp points which could puncture the bags, scratch a person’s hands, or puncture gloves. • Guaranteed Sterilization: +1 Sterilization® — process of sterilizing sealed cartons of Whirl-Pak® bags after manufacturing, which is completed at an independent ISO-certified facility. • Traceable Sterility: Download sterility certificates from whirl-pak.com using the lot number and master number on every box. • Film: Exceptionally clear film and superior strength by using co-extrusion low-density and linear low-density, virgin polyethylene. • Leak-Proof Closure: Whirling or folding the bag over three times and securing with the closure tabs creates a leak-proof sampling container. • Reduced Storage and Shipping: Whirl-Pak® bags can save you $$$ as they require less space vs. other sampling containers, which saves on shipping, storage, and waste costs.

FULL- PAGE FILT ER BAGS

Full-page f ilter bags perfect for collecting, blending, and pipetting Filter Bags contain a middle layer of finely perforated polyethylene film, which filters out solids in the blended sample, allowing for clean plate pipetting. The hole diameter in the filter layer measures .013 inches (.33 mm), 330 microns, and there are 1,840 holes per square inch (285 per square cm). The filter layer inside the bag is sealed into the sides and bottom perimeter, allowing the sample to be placed in the bag on either side. Liquids of a blended sample will transfer through the filter, while solids remain separate and contained.

T HI O - BAGS ÂŽ

E PA a p p r o v e d f o r m o r e efficient microbiological water sampling. Specifically designed for sampling chlorinated water from municipalities, swimming pools, waste water, and other areas to test for fecal coliforms or other bacteria. Each sterilized bag contains a nontoxic, nonnutritive tablet containing active sodium thiosulfate to neutralize chlorine at the time of collection. The bag is EPA approved and has the additional benefits of saving technician time, utility costs, storage space, and disposal costs by replacing other sample containers. Each sterilized bag has a convenient write-on strip.

S TAND - UP BAGS

Work s like a bot tle without the cost and storage constraints These self-standing bags make sample handling easier as they give users the ability to perform important laboratory functions with both hands. The bottom of the gusseted bag unfolds when a sample is placed inside, allowing the bag to stand upright. Stand-up bags function just like a bottle; however, they cost less, come sterilized, are shatterproof, and use only a fraction of the storage and disposal space required by hard-sided containers.

Prevents solids from plugging the tip of the pipette when sampling liquids that may contain solid particles. Half of the sleeve is made with the 330 micron hole size filter material. The pipette slides into the sterilized sleeve and is inserted into the liquid to be tested. The liquid will pass through the filter, but not the solids. The sleeve is sized to hold a 10 ml pipette. Each pack of 25 comes packaged in a sterilized WhirlPak® bag, which can be closed after each use. Box of 20 packs (500 sleeves). B01523


WHIR L- PAK ® R ACK S Specially designed to hold various sizes of Whirl-Pak® bags. Made in the U.S.A. of 10- and 12-gauge steel fused together to create strong joints and straight lines. Racks are finished with an electrostatically applied powder coating. The result is a strong, durable finish which will stand up to many laboratory materials, and racks that can be autoclaved. Max dry temperature is 300° F (148° C) and wet temperature is 500° F (260° C). The B01048 rack can also be used for plate incubation by turning it on one side.
